We are very happy with Dan’s tutoring services! Our child is a fourth grader with unique challenges in the areas of attention and emotional regulation. Dan has been providing math tutoring services to our child since October, and he has been very beneficial to our child’s progress in the areas covered. Dan brings with him unlimited patience and the ability to maintain a calm learning environment. He is able to break problems down to manageable steps. Dan has the ability to tie math problems back to graspable real-life examples. The result is increased interest and focus on the part of our little student. We highly recommend Dan.
Dan has been working with my son for a few months now. He is supportive and caring, and my son feels very comfortable working with him. Dan has been moving him along at a good pace, and he is invested in making sure my son is well-prepared for his Bar Mitzvah. Thanks, Dan!
We want to thank Dan for tutoring our son for his Bar Mitzvah. Our son truly enjoyed working with you. Thanks to you, he dramatically improved his Hebrew fluency needed to read the blessings, Maftir and Haftorah portions for his Bar Mitzvah.
Through your balanced approach, which included not only practicing the prayers and portions, but also explaining the meaning of doing Bar Mitzvah, our son gained a deeper understanding of the Jewish culture. We were really impressed with your innovative approach to explaining the Maftir and Haftorah, which was supported by videos. He is now on his way to do his Bar Mitzvah. We look forward to sharing his special day with you.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
